TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! LET'S FACT CHECK KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY INACCURACIES FROM 2014 STATE OF THE CITY SPEECH!!!



It's a shame that NOBODY EXCEPT KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS are willing to take the time to call out Mayor Sly James regarding the inaccuracies touted during his recent 2014 State Of The City Speech.

To wit . . .

RIGHT NOW AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS TOUT DATA CONTRADICTING KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY JAMES MISSTATEMENTS DURING HIS 2014 STATE OF THE CITY SPEECH!!!

Let's make this quick and dirty . . .

First up, the idea that the Mayor's efforts to combat rampant Kansas City Youth Violence are laughable . . . It's not in his transcript (it's in the video) but while talking about "Mayor's Nights" our city's top elected official claimed there was not a single episode of violence during his Mayor's Nights.

WRONG. LAST YEAR THE MAYOR'S "ROCK THE BLOCK" PARTY ENDED IN A BRAWL THAT SPILLED OUT INTO THE STREETS!!!

In fact, episodes of violence also plagued the Community Centers hosting pizza parties to bribe "scholars" from flash mobbing but few people cared about the ruckus because at least it wasn't on the Plaza.

Next up . . .

THE MAYOR ONCE AGAIN TOUTED A COMMON MISCONCEPTION REGARDING KCI AIRPORT BORROWING!!!

Check it:

Mayor Sly James Said: "The reality is, however, that funds generated at the airport must stay there."

Fact check . . .

ABSOLUTELY INCORRECT MAYOR JAMES!!! HERE'S RESEARCH THAT PROVES AS MUCH: "Kansas City is borrowing money from the airport, with interest, to cover losses it incurred in tax abatements to things such as the Power & Light District."

One more . . .

Mayor Sly James touted the "Creative Economy" as a potential savior of this town . . . He rattled off some impressive stats BUT . . .

KANSAS CITY JOB GROWTH OR INCREASED TAX REVENUE FOR THE SO-CALLED CREATIVE ECONOMY OR THE HIGHLY TOUTED "SILICON PRAIRIE" INTERNETS BOOM HAS BEEN NON-EXISTENT!!!

Instead, the Mayor simply glanced over the fact that KCMO has collected LESS tax revenue this year and the signS of an economic boom have very few purely local indicators.

Again, it's important to call Mayor Sly on his misstatements and exceptionally sad to note that there is NOBODY else out there doing as much except our SEXY blog community.

You're not supposed to check for facts in what Mayor Sly James says, you're supposed to smile along and then get a consulting contract.

One thing we don't need are new ideas for raising revenue in KC. What we need are new ideas for reducing spending and living within our means in this God forsaken shithole where every mayor wants to leave a legacy that costs the tax payers for decades..

Who actually listens? Or believes anything he says? How many times can this guy let everyone down before we all quit paying any attention whatsoever?

James and the other elected thugs are going to bankrupt the city for their own gang and they could give a shit about the residents of Kansas City or the long term effects. This is like in the Sopranos when the mob took down the sporting goods store only in this case it is the banks and construction companies taking down the city and Mayor Silverback is Tony Soprano.

Can someone front me a few bucks for the David Irving concert tonight?

I got some mailer with Sly James picture on it re: issuing bonds. So, I made a note to myself to VOTE AGAINST IT. Because Sly wants it, it CANNOT be a good idea. Fuck this moronic mayor. Bond issue aside, this fucking asshole is trying to tax and spend us into a Detroit-like stupor. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. And this displeasure with our fool mayor goes well beyond the streetcar. Don't re-elect this son of a bitch.
